TASK 2.1

Task 2.1 states only that we should use authentication Type=1 (So clear text) but it doesn't specify a key, and by the default this works...it's simply the same as Type=0 Auth

If we look at Type=2 auth it also works, the router uses a default key

 

So from my point the task requirements are fulfilled...or not ?  Time to ask the proctor ?

  • when you do that on one side of the link and you have debug ip ospf adj you get the message:
    Jan  5 03:13:14.450: OSPF: Rcv pkt from 174.5.26.6, FastEthernet0/0.26 : Mismatch Authentication type. Input packet specified type 1, we use type 0 

    So null key its clearly a key.

     

    Kind regards

    You can use any key you want because the task does not require a
    specific password. The only thing you should care about is the authentication
    type along the interface on which you will authenticate OSPF packets.

     

    Just
    my 2 cents.
